Lionel Messi needed no time to adjust to Major League Soccer, scoring three goals across his first two matches with Inter Miami. Predicting Messi to score again on Wednesday night’s Leagues Cup match is the best legal Florida sports betting wager available.
Messi made his Inter Miami debut as a substitute against Cruz Azul, where he scored a free kick winner in stoppage time to give Miami their first Leagues Cup victory. The scoring increased in his first start against Atlanta United, where Messi registered two goals and an assist.
Another MLS betting option for goal scorers is Robert Taylor with +240 odds to score against Orlando City. Taylor scored twice in Inter Miami’s 4-0 victory against Atlanta United.
Can Inter Miami Keep the Momentum Vs Orlando City?
Inter Miami’s 4-0 victory against Atlanta United proved that their revamped squad is no fluke. Orlando City is tied for sixth in the MLS with 37 points, but finds themselves as 1.0-goal underdogs to the Messi-led squad.
Inter Miami Vs Orlando City Betting Lines
The Messi effect is real, and legal sports betting sites are all in on Inter Miami with -165 moneyline odds. Based on Inter Miami’s 5-3-14 (W-D-L) and Orlando City’s 10-7-6 records alone, Orlando City should be the betting favorite.
However, the addition of Lionel Messi has transformed Inter Miami into an offensive powerhouse. Their EVEN odds to cover the 1.0-goal spread are worth a bet considering they beat Orlando City 4-1 in October, 2022 without Messi.
